We just got back from Luxor 21.02.2020 I got to say our guide was fantastic. We booked though get your guide and it run smoothly. Every thing was grate. Picked up from the hotel In soma bay. Egypt. Even tho it says extra charge. There was not. one stop before Luxor. Then strait to Karnak temple and open air museum then cross the Nile on a boat this was optional and was 10 pound each Per person well worth it tho. Theare was no pressure and you could have just gone on the bus. and Then food in with the cost of the trip. Then to the valley of the kings three tombs and then to the queens temple, Hatshputs. And then a stop off to see Colossi of Memnon all inc a hand carving stone shop and then one stop before heading back to the hotel There was me my other half and 3 boys . And we had 2 drivers and a tour guide . I couldn’t fault it one bit We paid what was said on the time off booking . Included was pick up from the hotel . All entrances fees to everything stated and food. Excellent

The trip was very well organised and the guide was very clear about where we were going, what we were doing and what times to meet up after exploring during our 'free time'. It was a long journey but we got to see an awful lot. During the trip we got to see about 4 sites and upon returning to the coach we would find bottles of water, crisps, chocolate and cans of soda waiting for us which was a nice touch (and needed). The one regret i have about the trip is that at the valley of the kings you will have access to 3 tombs, you will have to pay extra to visit Tutankhamuns tomb (around £15 english per person) and i wish we had done that, but thats the only regret. Loved everything else and as we neared Luxor the guide told us so much about the way of life out here, we learnt so much. Would definitely recommend this tour!

Fully packed day, really interesting and informative. The guide was very knowledgable and gave good advice. Downside was the journey to and from Luxor as the drivers drove like “bats out of hell” there and back so at times it was a little scary so not for the fainthearted! Worth paying extra 300 Egyptian pounds to get entrance to King Tut’s tomb even if you only have about 1 hr in the Valley of the Kings overall - made it worth the scary travel and not to be missed

From beginning to end everyone was amazing so nice and attentive will definitely recommend this tour 150% very informative in an understanding way and no waste of time Lunch was delicious as well zero complaints very happy with my choice

Our guide ‘Bob’ was excellent, very knowledgeable and passionate about Egyptology. The itinerary was very well organized. The only downside was a longer than expected coach trip (5 hours each way ). Karnak
